The world´s best benchtop XRD system got even better now.

D2 PHASER XE-T Edition

Equipped with the unique LYNXEYE XE-T detector, the D2 PHASER XE-T Edition plays in a league of its own!

With an energy resolution better than 380eV, the LYNXEYE XE-T detector features four times the energy resolution of traditional silicon strip detectors.

This enhanced resolution allows the LYNXEYE XE-T to function in a unique, digital monochromator mode in to efficiently remove unwanted radiation, such as sample fluorescence, K-beta radiation, and Bremsstrahlung background scattering, without meaningful losses in one-dimensional detection speed.


  • Energy resolution <380 eV
    4x better than any other 1D detector on the market!
  • High-speed data acquisition
    Up to 450 times faster than a conventional point detector system!
  • Superior filtering of fluorescence and white radiation
    You don‘t need any Kß filters, mirrors, or monochromators!
  • Perfect line profile shapes
    No Kß filter artefacts (remnant Kß, absorption edges) in the data!
  • Outstanding peak-to-background ratio
    Best lower limits of detection (LLOD) and quantification (LLOQ)!
  • Quality by design
    Radiation hard - operation with all common characteristic X-ray emission lines!
    No defective channels at delivery time - guaranteed!


Superior filtering of fluorescence and white radiation

Natural iron ore sample illustrating the unparalleled lower limits of detection capabilities of the D2 PHASER XE-T Edition (red scan) versus standard benchtop XRD data (black scan). Thanks to the LYNXEYE XE-T detector, Calcite is easily detected (blue peak marker). For the standard benchtop XRD, Calcite is well below the detection limits.

Superior line profile shapes - no metal filter artefacts

Black scan: unfiltered radiation
Blue scan: Standard detector system with Ni-filter
Red scan: LYNXEYE XE-T. No remnant Kβ, no absorption edges
